"Fruit and Mind
Like the grape
Turned to wine
The original mind
Is now separate.
The miracle comes
From the ripened vine
First mashed, the crush
Is converted
To the finished juice
Aged in wood
The product is now complete.
In this life
We reach a certain age
Only to wonder
How we arrived at this place
From a perfect origination
It is never too late
To appreciate, to remember
The road we have traveled
Wait for the next thought
Patiently wait, and perhaps
You may realize
What has always been true
The miracle of
The original you."
